Pros Climbs well, durableLightweight, great climbing ability, comfortableComfortable, supportive, less expensiveSupportive, comfortable, durableLightweight, good technical climbing ability
Cons Not supportive, expensiveNot as durable as someLess precise climbing ability, heavyHeavier, more expensiveToo stiff for hiking, expensive
Bottom Line Suited best for the sport cliff, the Gecko is expensive and lacking in support.Thanks to its lightweight design, comfortable build, and top-notch climbing ability, this shoe is an all-around winner.The Grand Traverse's well-rounded score made it a top contender.If you're heading into the alpine, don't take off without the durable, supportive TX4.The Konseal FL excels in weight and climbing ability but lags behind in hiking comfort.
